Between 1936 and 1941, Frank Whittle, the inventor of the world's first prototype jet engine built in Rugby, based himself at Brownsover Hall, where he designed and developed early prototype engines.
There are standard and superior bedrooms in the Main House and also in the converted stable block within the grounds, where the bedrooms have a distinct unique charm, retaining many of the original oak beams. There are also a few standard bedrooms in the Coach House. All bedrooms have complimentary WiFi, iron and ironing board and 24 hour room service.
For elegant surroundings and an excellent dining experience, the WineGlass Restaurant offers the best of English cooking with fresh ingredients sourced locally wherever possible. The menu is overseen by Daniel Galmiche, a Michelin starred chef, who worked in conjunction with the head chef at the hotel to create inspired, delicious food, served in a relaxed atmosphere. Wine features prominently and there are 40 handpicked wines available by the glass. The Sir Frank Whittle bar offers a tranquil place to relax and enjoy a drink.
There are three meeting rooms, The Drawing Room, The Old Library and The Study, which offer multi-media projection and can seat up to 70 theatre style. Brownsover Hall also offers guests the opportunity to tee-off at the nearby 18 hole Rugby Golf Club.
The cities of Coventry, Leicester and Birmingham are nearby. So are the towns of Warwick, with its beautifully preserved castle and Leamington Spa with its fine Regency buildings and its Pump Rooms. Also close by are the towns of Lutterworth, Daventry, Kenilworth, Northampton and Southam.
